Bonnie Raitt, Maria Muldaur, Suzanne Vega. I liked the Margo Timmons suggestion too. I'm not sure if she could sing anything more upbeat than Stella Blue though. How about Mary Chapin Carpenter?

Presuming this is just a fantasy pairing and it doesn't have to be a contemporary of the GD, I'd go for Joan Osborne. Otherwise, imagine if they'd persuaded Grace Slick to leave the Airplane - that could have been interesting...

There's a great set of Gospel singing that npr first listen have available at the moment. So in that spirit, I reckon these lasses could have shared some blues duties with Pigpen. They might have disapproved of the drugs though.

I'm a Donna fan. I think people forget that she had a few distinct singing voices - the country twang/warble in 72-74, the cleaner/sweet voice she used post-hiatus, and the powerful psychedelic voice that she mixed into all the eras. So these breathy folksy singers just wouldn't be able to cut it for me. Of the people listed, I think Merry Clayton and Susan Tedeschi are the only ones who could sound good pulling off all the things Donna did.

Maria Muldaur did well with JGB, might translate to the GD.

Wonder if Bonnie Raitt would be able to fit in. Seems like they'd have a 3rd guitarist with that add. Seems she would be more of a person to sit in for a spell and transition out like Hornsby.

From today's leading ladies I'd chose from Susan Tedeschi.

And Nicki Bluhm is my other choice from the current talent.

Thanks BD. Saw her and the band at The Middle East in Cambridge, MA this past March. Thoroughly enjoyed the show. I got there a bit early and was sipping on a pop and talking to what I thought was a fellow auidence member. Conversation went something like this...
Me: "I've never seen these guys live, I'm really excited. How about you."
Him: "Yeah, they're all-right, got a good vibe going on."
Next thing I know he's onstage tuning up his guitar. Nice article about Deren Ney here:

Yea, I've gotten to know Nicki and her husband Tim, guy playing piano, on a a head nod/good to see you basis as they work closely with folks I know and every year they do the Hipnic at Fernwood in Big Sur with The Mother Hips, 2 Skinny J's (sp?) - Tim's band with Jackie Greene, and others. Mother Hips with Al Jardine of the Beach Boys was a blast (Al lives close to the library; super nice man). Last time I saw Nicki she played the Fernwood bar, which holds at most 100, for the aftershow for Ryan Adams and Jason Isbell at the Henry Miller Library. As Mando can attest, she is the sweetest, nicest gal in the world.
An article from 2 years back; sarah lee guthrie and johny iron played (right after they had been recording new album that jeff tweedy of wilco was producing)

That was good; very good...

I always thought that the obvious choice was Janis; and she did a time or two (though I didn't think those shows were all that good). So, though she made "sense" given their collective relationships, I think the lack of anything coming of it shows that it really wasn't meant to be...

The guys more or less were stuck with what they had, and tampering with it was just going to screw things up; I mean, all you need to know is what happened when they lost TC & PP, right? It was all downhill from there...

Best laugh of the day. Along with the Steve Perry

As much as I love Pearl, I don't see her with the band
ALL the time, if that is the question posed.

I would agree on Joan Osborne (bias, from Red Rox 2004), if
she would only learn the songs without the 10 pieces of
paper lyrics at her feet. 20 for Franklins and such.

Katie Glassman - Denver, Colorado

western-450.jpg

Summertime and Thursday evenings in Fort Collins feature free concerts in Old Town Square from 7pm to 9pm. On June 20, 2013, I walked by there about 7:30pm. As I was approaching Old Town Square I heard a lovely female voice singing. Then I heard a sweet swingin' fiddle playing some western swing.

The problem was that Emmylou Harris was scheduled for an 8pm set on stage at TBF this night, and I was looking forward to streaming some of her show from KOTO's live feed. I watched and listened to maybe five or six songs by Katie and her band Snapshot. Then I walked home to catch Emmylou.

What I did see performed by Katie and her band was OUTSTANDING!!! Katie and here band were very professional, excellent western swing playing (and more), great sound by the band, and I totally recommend them! They were very good and very entertaining.

"A mix of highly danceable western swing with a splash of jump blues and more than a sultry moment or two fueled by Glassman's breathy vocals and steamy solos." -- STRINGS MAGAZINE

SNAPSHOT band is:
Eric Moon on piano, oldtime/western accordion and vocal harmonies; Greg Schochet on swing guitar with his rich, vintage tone; and Charlie Mertens slaps away on the bass and sings vocal harmonies; Katie Glassman plays fiddle and sings.

"Denver native Katie Glassman has moved back home to Denver. She has a sparkling voice, a fast and soulful fiddling style and original songs that freshly interpret genres from vintage jazz to Western swing and bluegrass — all of which converge on her recent release SNAPSHOT, a perfect sonic representation (or snapshot, if you will) of her current work.

Glassman studied jazz and classical violin at the University of Colorado under jazz pianist Chip Stephens and violinist Jennifer John. She played in the top CU jazz combo, was awarded the Outstanding Performer Award at the Abilene Jazz Festival and was first runner-up for the IAJE International Sisters of Jazz Group. In 2004, she graduated with a degree in music performance and the first certificate in jazz studies awarded to a violinist."

Sam Bush plays mandolin on their CD release in March 2012.
